hello everyone, I'm new to Linux. Finally decided to switch because of the WMF exploit & the damage it's causing. About time I learned how to use a stable OS...Linux seems to be IT. Now that I have a reason to get off my duff & learn, I request a bit of help. A fast learner in general, just need some guidance.
For a beginner who only needs basic programs (internet, graphics editor, text editor, office apps) which is the best distro to choose? so far i've d/l and burned the following ISOs:
-Featherweight Live v1.3
-Gentoo 2005.1 Experimental
-Open SUS v10.0
-Slackware v10.2 (4 CD set)
-Vida Linux v1.2
There are so many distros & I want to jump head first into something that allows this functionality "out of the box". Please recommend something here or via PM. Thank you very much, looking forward to the journey away from M$oft.
